I've learned my lesson. Men can't read my mind. Especially when it comes to what I'm doing to prepare for having guests. It started with an apple pie. It was Saturday and I knew that on Sunday we would have a table full of people for a meal. Since I didn't want to spend all of Sunday cooking, I decided to make dessert, apple pie, on Saturday. I knew that the smell of cooking apples and the baking pie would be too much for my husband. He would want a piece on Saturday night.
